The fine wine from Bertinga for everyday enjoyment. A true “Second Vin” that combines approachability and proven aging potential.

Sassi chiusi
Sassichiusi is Bertinga’s second vin.
Sassi chiusi
Its cuvée of Sangiovese and Merlot mirrors that of Bertinga’s premier cru, but Sangiovese plays a decidedly major role here.
Sassi chiusi
Despite its youthful character, Sassichiusi displays the same calm self-assurance as its elder brother.

Colour: ruby red, brilliant reflections.
Nose: very expressive, notes of exotic fruit, vine peaches and dried apricots, floral notes of orange blossoms and pink peppercorns.
Taste: the attack is frank and dynamic, the tannic frame is fine and tight. It is soft and sapid. The finish is saline and refreshing.

The 2016 vintage profile was standard, without any health problems in vineyards. The only noteworthy event was the low rainfalls registered at the end of July when veraison was going on, but the water stress was overcome by rainfalls at the end of August and beginning of September. The balance was also supported by the heat regularity without extreme spikes in the last month, and this helped grapes ripening with no overripe fruit. The excellent summer saw low rainfalls and high temperatures in July and August, but above all the significant gap between day and night temperature allowed to expect wines of high levels of aromatic profiles and excellent acidity.
